President Kagame Blames Arsenal Club ownersPosted By: Patience Rutayisire - On:04/05/2018
Arsene Wenger will officially leave Arsenal at the end of the season with no silverware in his last season and no Champions League football for the future as they were knocked out of the Europa League by Atletico Madrid.
President Kagame says,‘’my take on my beloved Club Arsenal- a very good one at the game and a very good coach like a.Wenger ,this should not have been the kind of ending of an era. The coach is leaving and club trophy-less it was long coming! I am still a committed fan going forward :). Blame the owners ,‘’ he twitted.
The president added that change is the factor of development only if it is for better, ‘’as I had said way back and just as a good observer...something fundamental needed to change at/about the club. But if anything changed it was not the right one. All the best to all involved! We still need Arsenal to go back where it belongs- up there among the best in the game!’’
Wenger surprised everyone last month by confirming that after 22 years in charge of Arsenal he would be leaving in the summer. With the season virtually over already for them they knew only a Europa League win would let their legendary boss go out on a high.
Arsenal were at home for the first leg and were given an early boost went Atleti went down to 10 men but in typical Atleti fashion they stood firm and ended up drawing the game 1-1 despite the Gunners dominance.
It's not good news for Arsenal but for Simeone it's his chance to win a fifth major trophy since becoming manager of the Spanish capital side, and he has also taken his team to two Champions League finals.
